Obama visiting Manchester’s Central High Tuesday
MANCHESTER – The White House has confirmed that President Barack Obama will visit Manchester Central High School on Tuesday, where he is expected to discuss the American Jobs Act and promote his jobs plan.
The event, scheduled to begin at 12:15 p.m., is open to the public, but tickets will be given on a first-come, first-served basis due to limited seating, according to officials.
Tickets, which are free, will be distributed beginning at 10 a.m. Monday at Central High’s main office entrance on Beech Street.
The White House also stated in published reports that Obama’s arrival to and departure from Manchester will be closed to the public, but open to media with preapproved credentials.
The trip to Manchester will be among Obama’s first stops since his return from a nine-day trip to Hawaii, Australia and Indonesia.
Obama’s visit comes on the heels of a visit by Vice President Joe Biden, in which he spoke at a First Amendment award ceremony and pitched the jobs bill to veterans in a visit to an American Legion hall. Obama’s jobs plan, proposed before a joint session of Congress in early September, has stalled in the Senate.
